What a wonderful opportunity to hear the history and savour the tastes of the Chelsea Market. This "hot " area is home to top restaurants and top designers and a has a fun feature in the High Line Park.

Bob Gelber lead our group and was an outstanding guide. He knows the area intimately and knows the merchants personally. He was patient and humourous. This was a highlight of our New York weekend and we would highly recommend the experience.

I went on the tour with my parents (they're a spritely couple of 75 and 70 years old) and was introduced to yet another exciting facet of New York that makes coming back always a revelation - its food! The pace of the tour was just right - my parents were able to keep up with the walk and we were amply rewarded with a dose of history and a generous spread that included artisanal cookies and pastries, jams and cheeses, seafood, chocolate milk and gelato, pasta, and even a country-style Italian picnic.

There was never a dull moment in this three-hour journey of discovery. The enthusiasm and passion that our guide conveyed to all of us who were there that afternoon, was infectious. Thank you, Diana!

I guess from now on, I'll think twice about defaulting to "fast food" and I will be a little more deliberate about seeking out the little gems that one is sure to find in NY. I can think of no better way than to hit the ground running with this perfect introduction to the Foods of New York!

You will see us again.

With love from the Philippines!

Feel breadth was limited re: sites

I felt the scope of the tour could have been enhanced including the tasting (e.g. cheese twice). I felt we spent too much time in the chelsea market and not much in meat pkg district plus only one tasting there. I also thought our leader had an attitude problem and at times was snarky.

This was my first trip to the UK. The trip had been recommended by a friends son who is resident in NY. It was excellent and our guide was so informative. It was all that I had expected and more. If you decide to go on this trip there are so many wonderful tasting sessions that you would not need breakfast - perhaps just a coffee.

Would recommend to all my friends and family.
